The Day I Met My Teacher: Hay House Summit

It is not everyday that you meet someone that has an impact on the way you look at life.

It was May 6th 2016 the day I met my teacher. I didn’t know this at the time but I was destined to become aware of synchronicity at a deeper level.

It was the first day of the Hay House World Summit. It was staring with a movie called “The Shift” with Dr. Wayne Dyer. I had been seeing Dr. Wayne Dyer quite frequently online and mentioned in books and audiobooks but the time wasn’t right. I wasn’t ready.


As Wayne loved saying “When the student is ready the teacher will appear”.


The power of synchronicity makes me marvel at the divine orchestration of events every single time. Just a year before the Hay House World Summit I had discovered Louise Hay by what you would call coincidence. A family member visiting us had left behind the book “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay.

Unbeknownst to me, the book was in my study for almost 2 years before I discovered it that day in February 2015.

Something compelled me that day to clear up the window sill and find this book. It was a translation in Greek and the cover had a funny looking heart. I opened the book and I landed on a chapter where Louise talked about disease in the body and the most common cause being lack of love. Specifically loving ourselves.

As It happens with such things I laid my eyes on a particular health issue I was dealing with at the time. I wrote down the lines and put the book back.

The next day I told my wife about this funny looking book I had found in my study and showed her the chapter about health and disease. She was drawn to the way Louise approached life and within a couple of days we had read the whole book and were listening to Louise’s wonderful affirmations and meditations. This continued every day for a year, but as I kept stumbling upon other books, I discovered that most of these books I enjoyed were published by the same publisher, Hay House.


At the time I didn’t connect the dots, that Louise had indeed created a publishing house at age 62. I started visiting the website and discovering other authors and almost every time, there was Dr. Wayne Dyer featured prominently on the website. I kept asking myself, who is this person but didn’t allow for the time or the space to find out. I was busy.


Until he came to me.


I remember signing up for Hay House World Summit expecting to listen to Louise Hay, Brendon Bruchard and many others. I was still unaware of who Dr. Wayne Dyer was and his body of work. I remember myself that day looking back now being driven around by ego up until the moment the movie started playing.


I was taken by surprise by the serenity and decisiveness of every word he spoke, bringing to life the work of Abraham Maslow, Carl Jung and many other great teachers that came before him.


I vividly remember the beginning of the movie, where Dr. Wayner Dyer wakes up and says “Thank You” and then gets up and walks to his study to start his morning writing at 3:18 am. He is reading an excerpt from Carl Jung that epitomises the spectrum of human struggle.


Thoroughly unprepared, we take the step into the afternoon of life. Worse still, we take this step with the false presupposition that our truths and our ideals will serve us as hitherto. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning, for what was great in the morning will be little at evening and what in the morning was true, at evening will have become a lie.
— Carl Jung


He then continued on to discuss the levels of the Ego and other wonderful concepts that have puzzled me for years. I watched the movie twice that night and then started frantically looking up other books or videos he had created.

I soon discovered that Dr. Wayne Dyer had passed away 9 months prior. It was a sad realisation but the more I kept looking into his early work and later on his work with Hay House and PBS, I realised that he was a charismatic speaker who delivered his speeches in a way that stepped outside the boundaries of time. Every time I listen or watch Dr. Wayne Dyer I feel that he is here.


I now believe that what is to happen will happen but I can see now that the Hay House World Summit was the catalyst for discovering one of my greatest teachers and for that I am eternally grateful.


Every effort from Hay House and Reid Tracy to raise our consciousness through books, events, courses and this summit are tools for our spiritual evolution. After all, we are spiritual beings having a human experience, not the other way around.


Through these 18 days, you will discover and become aware of layers that no longer serve you but cover up what is the essential you.
